4 Students Shot at an Ohio High School

The suspect has been arrested in a shooting in the school cafeteria.


Four students have been shot at an Ohio high school, according to CNN.

The gunman opened fire in the cafeteria of the surburban-Cleveland high school just as the school day was beginning. The suspect, reportedly a student at the school, was in custody, an FBI agent told reporters.

The students are injured, but the extent of their wounds have yet to be disclosed. FBI agent Scott Wilson said he just "hopes they are OK." CBS This Morning correspondent John Miller reports that at least one of the students was critically injured.

The shooting was reported around 7:30 a.m. at the 1,100-student school, according to CBS News.

Television footage showed parents hurrying to the school to escort children away from the building, and ambulances could be seen arriving at the high school to transport injured students.

The students who were shot, according to one student, were from a nearby high school and were waiting for a bus to take them to their school as they waited in the cafeteria.

More updates to come as information is released.
